As for me, I plan to pay much more attention to the contents of my multivitamin/multimineral supplements, and to make sure I get more calcium and magnesium, which should help both my bones and my mood. I’m also going to take selenium each day to cut my chances of developing the cancers that have dogged my family. And I’ll probably keep guzzling my mineral water. I know the negligible amounts of minerals in it can’t compensate for the fact that I eat more Kit Kats than kale, but at least it’s better than diet cola, which I now know is leaching important minerals from my body. And Mom’s nasty water is one thing I know won’t disappear from the refrigerator when I’m not looking.
